Happy New Year
January 20, 2022 - As you are likely aware we are creating new part lists every month. This is an exhaustive process to ensure we compile the correct parts per each locomotive type and clearly describe the decoration on each part. When searching exploded view diagrams you can enter the product number of the item you are looking for or you can enter a wheel configuration (i.e. 4-8-8-4, 4-6-2, 4-8-4 or a locomotive type; Hudson, Pacific, Mohawk, etc.,). This search will return all the part lists for a particular locomotive, providing it has been completed and posted to the site.

Something to keep in mind is that we include parts for PS-1, PS2, and PS3 variants on the same list. So be sure to read the part descriptions carefully, so as not to order a tender truck made for a Protosound 3 model (with chains) for your Protosound 1 model. This is another reason why every part in the system has its own unique photograph.

Let’s assume for a moment you are waiting for a part list to be completed for a model that you own and you need to find a part sooner. You can search our entire parts inventory by going to Search Service Parts. When performing a search for a specific part be sure to use very broad terms. For instance, if you are looking for a side frame for a diesel locomotive start with basic terms; SIDE FRAME (then click the search button). This search will yield 525 different parts. Now use the filter field (just above the results displayed below) to find the side frame you are looking for. For instance; (in the filter field) type "GP". This will filter the results to 22 different parts, where you can look at the photos of each part to narrow down which one you are looking for.

Here is another example, let’s suppose you were searching for a part for a motorized aquarium car. To begin, click on the "SHOP" button at the top of the page OR click on the blue "SEARCH AGAIN" button. Starting with a broad search topic enter "AQUARIUM" and click search. This will return 26 results. You can filter the results for "DRIVE BELT" or "GEAR BOX", etc. to reduce the size of the returned list. When starting your search with a specific product type (in this instance AQUARIUM) you will see all the individual parts that make up an aquarium Car. The same broad search term could be "MCDONALD" to see all the parts that comprise the RailKing McDonald’s accessories. Whenever possible try to avoid apostrophes or characters other than letters or numbers. The simpler the initial search term the better.

New Exploded View Part Lists

The electronic list includes tethers, drawbars, specific Protosound boards, lights, LEDs, couplers, smoke units & smoke unit components, etc.

A mechanical part list includes all of the pieces that comprise a specific model; screws, drive blocks, linkages, side frames, etc.
